"Bangladesh" does very well, 528 grants totalling £37,688,453.
Searching "ethnic minority" shows 818 grants for a sum totalling £64,645,765.

For "Jewish" it's 434 grants for a total of £15,420,412.
"Muslim" showed 177 results and a spend of £7,881,479.
Even something more obscure like "Congolese" gave 138 grants for a total of £1,641,141.
"Black" - admittedly a broad catchall so all might not be related to skin colour, but most appear to be - gives 2,664 grants for a total of £161,990,796.
"White" gives 755 grants - and so far as can be seen none of them have anything to do with white as an ethnic group, rather things like white goods.
Searching "indigenous" is interesting. 56 results totalling £5,035,830.
British indigenous? Well.....
Practical Action received £721,166 to help indigenous families in Peru.
Target Tuberculosis got £495,177 to help indigenous tribal communities in Jharkhand, India.
Allavida benefitted from a handout of £384,490 for indigenous populations of Kenyan coastal zones.
Receiving £369,763 was Action Aid. That's to help the indigenous and descendants of African slaves in the State of Maranhao, Brazil.
You get the picture. Not one British indigenous cause on there, no surprise there.
Something to think on next time you're queueing up to do your numbers and hope against hope you win - some groups are certainly winning every time you buy a ticket.

Also, I reprinted this from South West Nationalists - seemed quiet here today, and I’m having a useless days writing so little help either. Sorry all, brain just not working, will try harder next time.
